NEW MUSIC: APOLLO GHOSTS – PINK TIGER DOUBLE LP!

NEW MUSIC: APOLLO GHOSTS – PINK TIGER DOUBLE LP!

January 11, 2022 | Posted in: Apollo Ghosts 0

Pink Tiger is the 2-part, 22-song epic return by Vancouver’s beloved DIY champs Apollo Ghosts!

Part 1, “Pink” (LP 1, tracks 1-11), is an intimate home recorded acoustic based cycle that grapples with loss, illness, death, and memory. Part 2, “Tiger” (LP 2, tracks 12-22) is an exuberant indie-garage rock celebration of the persistence of friendship, music, and hope. Apollo Ghosts draw on a long history of independent and locally focused music making, from Flying Nun to K Records to their own Vancouver scene, to reinvigorate indie guitar rock songwriter with ambition and poise.

Available March 11th, 2022 exclusively via You’ve Changed Records—the album features the band’s new single, “Spilling Yr Guts”.

“About seven years ago, I stood around a makeshift fire pit in a clearing on a small gulf island with a group of my best friends. We burned a beer can and made jokes. When I started recording the first half of this record, I thought everything was falling apart. For six months, I could only hear from one ear and the doctor said it could be something quite serious. The cedars were still dying. My dad was still dying.

A year later, we recorded the second half of the record on Gabriola Island. My ear finally cleared up after the sessions were over. We listened to the final masters in the middle of the heat dome summer during the Perseid meteor shower. The heat dome eventually ended. In the fall, Amanda and I planted dozens of trees (Garry oaks, willows, alders and maples) around that fire pit. Our bass player Robbie’s having a baby this spring. Amanda’s started restoring hand-crank sewing machines. She says everything can be mended. It might be too late, but I’m going to keep planting trees every year going forward anyways.

Apollo Ghosts joked that this was a feeble attempt at making our own ‘Tusk’. Some influences this round: The Bats, Dear Nora, Little Wings, Tom T. Hall, The La’s, Beverly Glenn Copeland, disco beats, ocean swims, trees, Lucia Berlin & Lydia Davis, and as always…. the local music scene.”

Welcome to the New Year, from Julie Doiron and You’ve Changed Records!

As so many of us are in various stages of separation and isolation, and with the dream of a return of live music and communal experience postponed again, we want to share some recordings from Julie’s album release show at the Horseshoe Tavern in December. Julie was joined by Dany Placard on bass and vocals, Daniel Romano on lead guitar, and Ian Romano on drums.

This was a beautiful, truly special show, that happened in the small window of optimism and opening this past fall, before new variants and bad governance led us back into darkness….

“The crown skull of existence is consumption while genocide seeps into the cracks of our everyday. We’re beginning to see beyond the veil….”

Status Non Status present a new video for Genocidio in collaboration with director Travis Welowszky.

“From atop the makeshift mountain, a grim presence looms above the life below. A meditation on the endless, encroaching empire. The creatures traversing this plane are plastic and placeless; conjoined to their terrain as playthings in the tableaus of glorious exploiters. The understudies of colonial rule, silhouetted across a hill, obscure serenity by way of simulation; scrambling signals. Colonial esoterica. Banal evil in list form. Silence: the cause to the resounding pain.”

Genocidio appears on the Status/Non-Status 1, 2, 3, 4, 500 Years release
